Executive governance

The role of the executive is to take forward the operational work of the organisation in line with our statutory purpose, and according to the strategic aims, business plan, policies and schedule of delegated authority agreed by Council. The Executive Board is the senior decision-making and oversight forum established to provide strategic direction, scrutiny and reporting to Council by the GMC’s senior management team of significant decisions about policy, strategy, finance, performance, operational delivery and resources.

In this section you can find meeting papers considered by the Executive Board, as well as summaries of decisions from those meetings. In a limited range of circumstances subject to our Freedom of Information arrangements some papers may be withheld from publication.
